Agent Profile

Sharon Shahinian, Halstead's 2016 NJ Agent of the year, is a well-known real estate agent throughout Hudson County for her sophisticated, world-class real estate representations. Recently recognized by the Wall Street Journal as one of the Top Agents in the United States, she has sold estates overlooking the Hudson; handled transactions for network presidents; listed and sold a historic Stanford White home owned by the founder of the NY Waterways; and overseen a NJ landmark case home purchase for a handicap renovation hiring from the attorneys, architect, and decorator. In a short period of time, Sharon rose to the top of her field and has sold millions of dollars for buyers and sellers, earning Platinum and Gold designations in NJAR circle of excellence (NJAR Circle of Excellence Winner 2001-2018), and became a certified luxury marketing specialist. She has earned the respect of her peers as well as countless satisfied clients as she consistently provides exceptional service and knowledge.

Prior to her real estate career, Sharon was the GM for what is now the largest post-production company on the east coast and started it from ground up. During her tenure she oversaw the post for feature films editing in New York, working with clients such as Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, John Sayles, network broadcast programming, advertising agencies, and independent filmmakers.

Sharon attributes her real estate successes to her keen business acumen in live theater, television, and film production. Working as an actor and producer in New York and Los Angeles in movies, television, and theater and wearing many hats, she was involved in all forms of marketing and branding, creating innovative strategies to bring audiences to the theater. Today she merges those marketing and managerial skill sets to selling and buying the perfect homes or investment properties for her clientele.

Sharon is a 22-year resident of Hoboken, New Jersey having moved from Manhattan where she lived in the Village for 17 years. She founded the New Jersey Youth Theater, a youth organization that writes and directs their own movies. She has traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Caribbean, and was an avid sailor, once working and living on boats in the Virgin Islands in a sailing experience for teens. Sharon is the mother of a recent graduate of New York University and is completely versed on all the options of the school systems in the surrounding areas, as she raised her son in Hoboken.
